Live models posed in shop windows yesterday for Mannequin Monday, the kick-off to the City of Hamilton’s Evolution Fashion Week.

While yesterday was the first public event of the week, models also attended a special master class Sunday morning. Make-up artist Christopher Vee, Bermudian professional model Darius Dio and modelling company representatives Paul Nelson and Lamont Robinson passed on their expertise to the attendees.

Tomorrow evening will feature a hair and beauty showcase as part of the July 4 celebrations on Front Street.

Danilee Trott, City of Hamilton events project manager, said: “This will be another opportunity to see what is available in Bermuda as we focus specifically on this art form.”

The Evolution Fashion Show will start at 7.30pm on Saturday at City Hall. Ms Trott said they are expecting even more people than the thousands who attended last year.

“This year’s show will be more exciting with lots of surprises,” Ms Trott said.

“There will be some 150 models strutting up and down the 80ft runway featuring clothes from 23 retailers and hair by four salons. Attendees can expect a variety that will feature something for everyone.”

Audience members are encouraged to bring folding chairs and arrive early to stake out a spot. VIP tickets offering access to a reception and reserved seating are also on sale at City Hall.
